Easy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies


Not vegan. I have been sick with bronchitis for the last two weeks. I wanted to treat myself to homemade cookies, but it couldn’t take a lot of work, since I was weak. This takes about 8 minutes of prep and 8 minutes of cooking time. Modified from a recipe at Taste of Home.

Pamper yourself!

1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 Cup quick oats
1/2 tsp baking soda

1. In a small bowl, cream peanut butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg. Add oats and baking soda to creamed mixture; mix well.
2. Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto greased baking sheets; flatten slightly. Bake at 350° for 8-9 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool.
